Cross Shard Composability with Linear Scaling
Shardeum is sharded, allowing the network to scale linearly with more nodes. Horizontally scaling in this fashion allows for high transactions per second at low gas prices.

Cross Shard Composability Communication With EIP-2930
Smart contract addresses that don't have the same prefix are deployed to different shards. The EIP-2930 accessList is used for shard routing contracts on different shards and is automated inside Shardeum nodes.

Integrate File Storage Into Shardeum
We recommend users to use decentralized file storage standards like IPFS and Filecoin.
Files stored on IPFS can be used in contracts to deploy contracts with CID values as shown in this example:
